10:00 EDT Monday, July 01, 2013

NEW YORK, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a securities class action has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota on behalf of those who purchased shares of Medtronic, Inc. ("Medtronic or the Company) (NYSE: MDT), during the period between December 8, 2010 and August 3, 2011, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that defendants violated federal securities laws.  On June 23, 2011, Medtronic issued a press release that stated that the U.S. Senate had requested information regarding its Infuse product. Then on June 28, 2011, an issue of The Spine Journal identified conflicts of interest concerning the researchers who had performed studies on Infuse.  Then on August 3, 2011, the Company announced it would release Infuse data to the public and agreed to pay $2.5 million to Yale University so that researchers might conduct a review of previous studies.  According to the complaint, the true facts, which defendants concealed from the investing public during the class period, included that the Company had engaged in a scheme with certain researchers to downplay the risks and side effects associated with Infuse and that once those risks were fully appreciated by surgeons, use of the product would drop significantly.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all Medtronic, Inc. shareholders who purchased common stock during the Class Period described above. 

No Class has yet been certified in the above action.
